Massage Therapy

Benefits of massage are relaxation, assisting in chronic pain and injury by easing tensions held around body pain, emotional pain and spiritual pain. It is a way to access the reset button by inviting the systems to shift into the parasympathetic nervous system and out of the sympathetic or reactionary mode. Massage helps integrate feelings, thoughts, with the body and leaves one with a sense of wholeness and ease without the pressure to think or talk.

Welcome! I have completed 750 hours of schooling at the Montana School of Massage. My training consisted of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, and Reiki. I am certified in Reiki II, and Upper Body Myoskeletal Therapy.

I believe that massage can improve the longevity, and mobility of society. It decreases stress, anxiety, improves blood circulation, reduces fatigue, and much more. Making the decision to become a massage therapist was based on helping people who have chronic pain that they can’t manage, but also for those people who just need a little help relaxing as well.

Massage has changed my way of living. It has taught me to manage my pain, making me a happier person. I thought living with pain was a normal way of life. Learning never stops for me, keeping educated gives me the advantage to better serve my clients.
